The new KTM 1090 whatever has tubeless wheels. It would be interesting to see if our hubs would fit to that rim...

On the other hand, one could send their hub to Woody's Wheelworks. They powder coated my hubs on my KTM and made tubeless wheels for my 950 Adventure. I never, ever, had a problem with those wheels until the day I sold the bike for a new kitchen....

Checked both and they are fine.

So I am officially nominating myself for dumb-ass of the year

In my defense...this is my first bike with ABS....

Turns out there is a single ABS ring on the front wheel (obviously) and currently, that ABS ring on the wheel is on the opposite side to where the sensor is

So....I guess I need to take the wheel off, remove the tire and put it on the right way and re-install the front wheel in the CORRECT position.

Did I mention I'm a dumb-ass

My guess is that this is a lesson learned, and a mistake you won't repeat.

Nope. I see it as a public service announcement - I'm all about helping others

I'm actually relieved that's all it is (hopefully )

You actually just made me realize that there is a way to turn your abs off permanently... Not a bad idea for a long adventure ride! Just turn the front wheel around (and obviously switch the direction of the tire)

Which is exactly why I did it of course....

Actually, that is a very good point. As long as you turn the tire as you say, and don't mind the annoying flashing light, it should perm disable the ABS.

Yep it sure is. Glad you got it figured out and DIDN'T take it to your dealer for them to tell you that. Now step away from the wrenches slowly...

One to file away in the memory bank....

Hahahaha now what did I say about you fucking up something with the ABS sensors?

Good catch, man. Takes some cojones to come back and admit when you fucked up but all can now benefit from your mistake. And much better that you caught it before you had to spend money to get someone else to troubleshoot.

Don't worry about it man, we've all done plenty of stupid shit like that.

BTW I know that the tires are marked for rotational direction and as I recall from a couple months ago, I think the wheels might be too. Look for a little arrow mark on the wheel. I'm not sure if they are or if I'm remembering wrong. So yeah, make sure you get all the arrows (wheel and tire) pointing in the right direction.

Electrical tape should cure that problem

Eek 800 vs 800 xc

In terms of engine and electronics, is there any big difference between the 800 and the 800 xc? I've just been reading up on both forums and want to make sure that i don't try to fix something according to this thread and have it be different for my bike (soon to be an 800 xc)
